The plea also sought direction that the woman, an Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) volunteer, be restrained from giving public statements on the issue.

The party has defended Vishwas and said the allegations against him are "baseless".

The woman, who had taken part in Vishwas's campaign in the Amethi Lok Sabha constituency in 2014 general election, went public here asking Vishwas to deny "rumours" of their alleged affair. She took the matter to the DCW which summoned Vishwas.
